Some people buy cars to get them from A to B; as a means to pick up kids from school and hopefully get to work on time, to bash about when four wheel driving, or take cruising on a road trip. Others buy cars to make a statement. A ride that challenges the speed of light, or one that screams look at me (we all know those types!) Luxury vehicles give the owner a heightened experience that they wouldn’t normally get driving a Honda Civic. Let’s take a look at the top five cars that do exactly that.
A relentless force. A fearless look and a timeless powerhouse. Lamborghini has a strong history of innovative designs and the Aventador is no exception. This is the biggest and meanest vehicle in their range boasting a mid-mounted 6.5 litre V12 and a zero to sixty miles per hour time in under three seconds. There are the standard Lamborghini colours to choose from, but if you’re in the market for something more special, they are offering a Paris Hilton-esque pink galaxy in a matte finish. It isn’t just your regular pink either – it sparkles.
No luxury car list is complete without an appearance from an Aston Martin. It the single most recognized car in cinematic history and has inspired millions of would-be James Bonds to a least have a drive in this famous relic. For a measly $4 million dollars (you probably have that lying around in your garage right?) you can re-create that illustrious image of Sean Connery resting cross legged against his ride, staring into the distance.
Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse
If Top Gear honours you with the title of Car of Decade, you’re probably doing it right. Bugatti’s are celebrated for their magnitude speeds and overall brilliance in automotive engineering. Although topping speeds of over 400 kilometres per hour, the Grand Sport Vitesse is by no means unsafe. It asserts elegant form and high-tech function of not only grace but absolute power and features a perfect blend of aesthetics and safety.
Ferrari La Ferrari
While the name may seem a tad on the uncreative side (Italian for ‘The Ferrari’) the rest of this beast is absolutely spectacular. So what lies in the heart of this creature? A V12 naturally. One that by itself pumps out 789 horsepower. That is until you hit the defibrillator and before you know it, the Kinetic Energy Recovery System is letting you roar up to 950 horse power. Before you head to your local dealership to take a test drive, I have to disappoint you as Ferrari is only offering these vehicles out to the elite. Your best bet is to scour the second hand pages of Craigslist Dubai.
Jaguar XJ Luxury Saloon
Luxury vehicles don’t need to cost an arm and a leg. Just ask Jaguar. Their XJ would make every executive driver happy with its artistic appeal and high levels of comfort and indulgent features. Normally known as the kitty cat of the car industry, Jaguar’s luxury saloon range has allowed them to regain its standing and respect within the automotive industry by providing one of the best executive cars money can buy.
